Add Physical Disk

Hi, I have a DL360 G5 server, with E200i Controller. I have ONLY one disk installed, and now, i'm trying to add a new disk to the array. I've inserted it, the BIOS recognize it, The ACU recognize it, the Inside manager recognize it, but my OS don't, why?? i'm using 2000 server as OS. Please, can u tell me what to do??

Thanks!!

Re: Add Physical Disk

Hello,

you must add this disk to an array and create a new logical drive, or expand a existing logical drive. This tasks can be done with ACU.

1. Start ACU
2. Create a new array or add the new disk to an existing array.
3. Create a new logical drive in the newly created array or in the expanded array.

Do a rescan in the disk management.

Best regards,
Patrick
